If your baby already weighs 6 pounds and 10 ounces at 36 weeks pregnant, does this mean you're going to have a big baby by the time you give birth?

Maybe...: If that weight estimate was done by sono, you need to know that sonos done near term are not very accurate at guessing weight. If it is a correct estimate, you could be looking at an 8+ lb. Baby at delivery if fetal growth continues at the same rate. ...Read more

36 weeks pregnant & want to know, if i haven't taken much prenatal pills throughout my pregnancy can I still have a healthy baby?

Normal to worry!: Unfortunately, 36 weeks is just the start of a long period of worrying about your children! while it would have been optimal to have taken prenatal vitamins, you get many of the same nutrients if you eat a reasonably healthy diet. Not smoking is also critical. If you are a smoker, stop now. Take comfort in the reassurance of your baby's activity and hopefully, normal exams. Good luck. Lgromkomd. ...Read more

Your body would clear out things that would get past the nose filter barriers before it would get to baby. ( if you were huffing the stuff all the time, different answer.). ...Read more

Im 29 weeks pregnant, fetus too small?(2 lbs.) should I be worried? My 1st baby only weigh 5lb.10oz at 36 weeks?

Depends: There are two types of small babies. Some babies are constitutionally small because their parents are smaller people. If you had a previous small baby then maybe that is your situation again. Other times babies are small because there's a problem with the placenta. Sometimes this can be due to conditions such as high blood pressure or diabetes your doctor knows best how concerning the smallness. ...Read more
